Little Flower by Christine Taing

90 pages
4 stars

What makes this book about bullies in school, and how to stand up and face them, so amazing is a twelve-year-old girl wrote it. She wrote a collection of short stories, and grouped them by age, has told a bit about bullying—what it is, and what it isn't (it isn't funny!), and given each age of child a means to counter the bully and possibly even make a friend.

As it says on the back of the book, "In this collection of short stories,m children learn to stand tall and strong against bullies and ultimately become the beautiful flowers they are meant to be."

If your children, or grandchildren, or even neighbor children are the target of bullies, consider sharing this book with them. If you know a bully, consider sharing this book with them. They may not realize, truly, the harm they cause.

And it's not just other children who bully, in many cases, it's also teachers, or parents, or neighbors.

I highly recommend this book.
